Cargo is a medium-brown Standard donkey, admitted for lifelong care to the Donkey Sanctuary of Canada in May, 2004. He has a white area along is nose and his left ear is permanently floppy.
This energetic, friendly donkey was one and a half years old at the time of his admission. Little was known of his background except that he had been abandoned in poor condition at an equine auction. After two days in the pen, a visitor to the auction noticed him and persuaded the auctioneer to give the little creature over to her care. Unfortunately, she had not the facilities to care for Cargo and so she appealed to the DSC.
Upon his arrival at the Sanctuary Farm, it was evident that Cargo had received very little attention during his short life. He responded immediately, however, to the care of DSC staff and volunteers and he quickly became comfortable around students and visitors to the farm.
Given his outgoing, sociable nature, Cargo is a popular member of the family of residents at the Sanctuary Farm. He brings much pleasure to the people with whom he comes in contact and it is evident that he is extremely content as he roams the fields, grazing and frolicking with his equine friends.
